About Nate Hoffelder (10016 Articles)
Nate Hoffelder is the founder and editor of The Digital Reader:"I've been into reading ebooks since forever, but I only got my first ereader in July 2007. Everything quickly spiraled out of control from there. Before I started this blog in January 2010 I covered ebooks, ebook readers, and digital publishing for about 2 years as a part of MobileRead Forums. It's a great community, and being a member is a joy. But I thought I could make something out of how I covered the news for MobileRead, so I started this blog."

  1. That LitHub title is terrible. The article is actually about why “write what you know” is good advise provided that you know what the phrase really means. I have no idea who the intended audience is, or if the author knows either. Any writer or reader would know that phrase doesn’t mean write a documentary on a real event. Who was that article written for? Amelia Bedelia?

    On the CSU article, as someone who went to high school in Modesto I can say that Stan State is a very low tier school. It doesn’t surprise me that the students’ approach to studying is to highlight text. It’s not a serious approach to studying, it’s pretend studying. And studying a textbook requires so many annotations that it’s really done by notebook and not in the book. One needs to ask students at UCLA instead why they prefer print vs. ebook for a meaningful response.
